Zeynep Stefan (LinkedIn profile) has been in the insurance and risk management business for over 10 years. In this interview she talks a bit about moderating a panel, and gives some tips to other moderators.

As you’ll hear, she’s a big advocate of moderators preparing before the panel, and of meeting with your panelists before the event.

She also discusses the importance of effective listening, and having the ability to interact harmoniously with others.

At the end, Zeynep refers to a couple consulting sessions she had with us a few years ago, and is still benefitting from. Thanks for the kind words Zeynep!
